This handbook is a guideline for NGOs and other civil society organisations involved in community projects.

It's purpose is to give suggestions and guidance on how to go about project planning and design. Projects that are undertaken by NGOs and other civil society organisations often address problems of organisational development.

Thorough analysis of the organisation, its membership base, structures, problems and needs is necessary in order to identify the most effective ways to tackle the problems. Another problem faced by many NGOs and other civil society organisations is the elaboration of good project proposals.

Therefore, REPARED has developed joint guidelines for NGOs and other civil society organisations in order to improve the quality of project planning.
